Doom II: Hell on Earth

Mazedude truly surprises with this balls-to-the-wall Doom 2 ReMix that is much heavier and more aggressive than his previous (though no less impressive) submissions. From the nice use of game samples to the in-your-face pitch-bendin' slap-bass-o-death doubled with a synth bass at points to the extensive dsp that goes above and beyond the call of freaky (truly masterful work in the special effects arena . . . you'll see). Judges were pretty unanimous in their opinion that this was some good gibbing mixage that is both imaginative and fun. Fans of industrial music or - heck - just plain GOOD music shouldn't hesitate. Not much else to say here, other than commending Mazedude on a mix that he obviously spent a lot of time tweaking to perfection (both arrangement and effects) and that branches off into new genre territory relative to his other tracks. Highly recommended.

This is dark, guitar is dark, bass is dark (And unbelievably awesome), it's just dark. For a moment, I thought my computer crapped itself when it started stuttering, very cool effect.
Another awesome track by Mazedude.

In before someone mentions 'Them Bones'!
..oh wait..
Mazedude delivers again, and really kicks it up. This is possibly one of the coolest mixes i've heard by him. As per the original request, I won't spoil the surprise, but damn, it's awesome. Some of the synths could be a little higher-fi, but it evokes the original pretty well with that crappy distorted guitar sound that appears for a bit on the right side, and the rest of the synths were great, so I am guessing it's intentional. :-)
Super cool stuff, it sounds like some additional mixed meters were added. I know the original had a mixed meter, but more is always cool with me.
Check this one out, everyone.

Man, this reminds me of so many different tunes. Most prominant is a track by Alice in Chains. Sounds awesome.

Nice. I'm especially loving that effect at 2:20.
I'm not very much for slow songs with a sad mood in them, but I have my reasons to think this is great. Mazedude is awesome.

Try listening to it with 5.1 surround sound. It jumps around from speaker to speaker and almost makes you dizzy.

I have to agree with most everyone else here: this song rocks! I especially like the effect around 2:22. Overall, the song gets kinda repetitive, I guess, but its still a fun listen.

I must say...always been a fan of the DOOM games, and none of your remixes have let me down. This one is probably my favorite of your submissions, though Oldskool Demon is very close to the top there.
I'd like to see more, and I don't doubt that you'll poke your head back into OCR sometime soon. If it's with another DOOM mix, I'll be happy.

Eulogic wrote: A great remix, but I'm not as fond of the root song ("Bye Bye American Pie") as I am of some of the others in the game. I like his remixes of "Shawn's Got the Shotgun" and "The Demon's Dead" better, but solely because I like prefer the originals. I would love to see him do "Into Sandy's City" (Map 09).
EDIT: I'm retarded. I need to actually look at the remixes before I post. Downloading "Gothic Sandy" right now.

The original tune for this piece was Alice in Chains 'Them Bones', if you want to look it up on a kazaa engine.
I'm nice enough that I've supplied a little clip of the original song here:
Right click & Save as.
Enjoy.
(btw: this song still kicks the llama's ass.)

I agree with everyone, this is amazing. The use of effects, is truly amazing and fits the song perfectly.

I was never really fond of this music in the game, and I wasn't very fond of Barrels o' Fun (Map23), either.. But.. This is an awesome remix! :D
Great work!

Thumbs up! I love the twists and turns and will go any place this song wants to take me. I like the sequence that starts at 2:20. Really cool. Sometimes I hear it in my sleep.

This song was a mixed bag for me...the distorted rockin industrial beat is excellent. The instrumentation on the main tune that goes overtop of the beat isn't. To me it's just annoying, and it sounds like it got recorded directly off of some bad NES game. I wish the song were either redone with new instrumentation on the tune/melody, or that it were just the industrial/distorted/beat part with nothing over top.
